Faculty Minigrants

CCEL provides minigrant funding for faculty in two areas:
Research or Projects:  to conduct community engaged research or plan and carry out community projects.
Curriculum:  to create or redesign curriculum incorporating community engagement and community partnerships. 

Brain Bee 2012

Funding is available for full-time faculty for these two types of community-engaged activities that further develop partnerships, involving students, faculty, and community members as participants in addressing public issues.  Awards are open to full-time faculty in all UAA schools and colleges and at all campuses. Junior faculty, faculty teaching GER courses, and faculty in under-represented disciplines are encouraged to apply.

Current Mini-Grant Funding Opportunities:


The Center for Community Engagement & Learning (CCEL) announces a request for proposals for Fall 2018 Faculty Minigrants.  Funded proposals will conduct community engaged research or plan and carry out community projects and involve UAA students whenever possible. These projects include engaged scholarship and professional partnerships with community organizations that incorporate the principles of reciprocity and respect for community knowledge with research or creative activity.

This year in particular we encourage applications from faculty who may be interested in using the Resilient Communities Workshop to further their projects. The workshop is designed for faculty and community partners working on community issues together to further their projects. It is scheduled for Wednesday, May 16, from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm, and will be part of the CCEL Faculty Intensive. Registration information will be available on the CCEL website soon!
